    Master’s Student Meet Up @ The Sarah Doyle Center

    Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender, 26 Benevolent St, Providence, RI 02912

    *Space is limited. Please RSVP at this link: https://tinyurl.com/MAmeetup

    Join us for a fall open house for master’s students at the Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender. Take a tour of the center, meet the staff, and make new friends! Take a break from mid-terms and be in community with us. There will be sweet treats, activities, and a chance to win some fabulous prizes. Co-sponsored by School of Professional Studies and the Sarah Doyle Center.

  • Please join the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice Race, Medicine and Social Justice Research Cluster to welcome Professor Aumoithe for a lecture entitled “Medical Scarcity through Natural and Political Disaster in the United States”.

    The so-called richest country in the world, the U.S. produces an abundance of pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, and specialty care. At the same time, access to these resources are stratified across lines of race and class. Despite the plenitude, how do we puzzle over the historical lack of healthcare access in the U.S. and, thus, the manufactured scarceness of that care? How do we make sense of the paradox of abundance coexisting with impoverishment? This talk will explore how natural and political disasters over time have revealed the rotten underbelly of U.S. healthcare, showing how medical scarcity is created and operates.

  • Interested in starting your own venture or working in a startup environment? Want to learn more about the social mission behind many of the health-related companies in this dynamic panel? Moderated by Professor Jennifer Nazareno of the School of Public Health and the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship, you’ll learn more about the industry, the intersection of entrepreneurship and public health, how to secure funding, and the challenges and rewards of working for yourself. Students and alumni are encouraged to ask questions when registering, though the Zoom Q&A feature will be enabled during the webinar.

    Safe approval policies for continual learning systems in healthcare
    The number of machine learning (ML)-based medical devices approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been rapidly increasing. The current regulatory policy requires these algorithms to be locked post-approval; subsequent changes must undergo additional scrutiny. Nevertheless, ML algorithms have the potential to improve over time by training over a growing body of data, better reflect real-world settings, and adapt to distributional shifts. To facilitate a move toward continual learning algorithms, the FDA is looking to streamline regulatory policies and design Algorithm Change Protocols (ACPs) that autonomously approve proposed modifications. However, the problem of designing ACPs cannot be taken lightly. We show that policies without error rate guarantees are prone to “bio-creep” and may not protect against distributional shifts. To this end, we investigate the problem of ACP design within the frameworks of online hypothesis testing and online learning and take the first steps towards developing safe ACPs.

  • There’s a growing concern that renewable and clean energy solutions to climate change can be harmful in their own right. Indigenous peoples are among the communities, countries, and peoples who have stated this concern. Why are some energy solutions enacted irresponsibly? Part of the reason why has to do with how some proponents of these solutions narrate climate change through linear time. When narrated like a ticking clock, the sense that swift action is needed obscures responsibilities to others who risk being harmed by solutions. This presentation will then offer four different Indigenous approaches to narrating climate change, “depth time,” “seasonal time,” “kinship time,” and “dystopian time,” showing how each offers an account of responsibility. While philosophical, the Indigenous approaches have implications for climate governance, allyship, policy, and the media.

  • Negotiations can be daunting, you want the best possible outcome but getting there isn’t always easy or possible.The negotiation process requires rigorous planning and preparation and the best negotiations are the ones that yield mutual gain.

    Join this workshop to learn about the art of negotiation, from the skills required to become an expert negotiator to identifying your own negotiation style for the best outcomes, as well as how to develop a backup plan for when negotiations don’t necessarily go your way

    Crafting an Elevator Talk

    Location to be determined based upon recommendations closer to the date. Please check back to see if the session will be in-person (AMS, 222 Richmond Street) or virtual (Zoom).

    An important skill for anyone presenting their research or medical education innovation at a conference is the ability to summarize and engage. But how do you describe your work succinctly, and in such a way that your listener not only understands it, but is convinced of its importance? In this workshop participants will practice describing their work, and will utilize a framework to help craft an impactful two-minute “elevator talk.” The framework used has application for future oral and poster presentations, as well as networking and career development opportunities.

    Following this session participants will be able to:

    1. Identify and address problems with verbal descriptions of their scholarly work
    2. Develop “talking points” relevant to their scholarly work
